Having a quiet space to write is great but having good coffee shop to write in is just as important.
Not only do coffee shops provide coffee, tea and other assorted drinks that for some reason almost always taste better than the coffee, tea I make. I think it is because the water is hotter. They care also great places to people watch, listen and meet up with friends.
I also feel accountable in the coffee shop. At the coffee shop there are other people writing or working on laptops. There is the sound of fingers typing, needles knitting and papers being researched or discussed along with the sound of coffee brewing. Being surrounded by other people who are working motivates me to work.
Also coffee shops have scones and sandwiches so if you are writing like crazy and can't stop to make your own lunch they can make it for you.

Do you write in coffee shops?
